Rabbi Menachem Schmidt
In the summer of 2000, I approached my Rabbi and dear friend, Rabbi Menachem Schmidt, and said I have a few friends who might be interested in doing a relief mission to help poor Jews in some impoverished community somewhere overseas. He said "shnook" (or some similar and less repeatable Yiddish word), "what about all the poor Jews right here in Philadelphia?" So, we identified 19 Russian families who needed help. Rabbi Schmidt, myself, and another guy rented a U-Haul truck and loaded it up with food from BJ's Warehouse, and we made our first deliveries in September of that year.

Rabbi Menachem Schmidt
Rabbi Menachem Schmidt co-founded Jewish Heritage Programs in 1993 and has guided its activities and expansion to several regional college campuses. JHP was a pioneer in peer to peer campus outreach and mentoring of college students by community professionals. Under his direction, Jewish Heritage Programs became an umbrella group for the Jewish Business Network (JBN), Young Professionals Network (YPN), Old City Jewish Art Center (OCJAC), and the JHP Mentoring program while continuing its programming on the university level. Menachem was also instrumental in founding Philadelphia's Jewish Relief Agency, which distributes food to more than a thousand impoverished families each month, as well as the Chabad on Campus International Foundation, where he currently serves as President. Menachem gained his Rabbinic Ordination from Tomchei Temimim Lubavitch in Montreal in 1980, the same year he and his wife, Chava, founded Lubavitch House at Penn, where Menachem serves as Executive Director. Rabbi Schmidt is also a musician and he plays lead guitar in the Baal Shem Tov chasidic rock band.

But Rabbi Menachem Schmidt, a longtime leader in the local Chabad community who co-founded the Jewish Relief Agency and is the executive director of the Lubavitch House at the University of Pennsylvania, said opposition to vaccinations "is not an opinion of our community," though he said he does know a few people who don't vaccinate their children.
"Doctors have research," Schmidt said, adding that his own five children were all immunized.
